Jewish emigration to Israel. Also, a famous dead R & B singer, and a less famous alive R & B singer, and a few other things as well. Look it up.

I think it's an quite pretty name. And is actually a name unlike Serenity & Genesis [shudder]
May 20, 2013

Serenity is actually a name, and a very pretty one. I like the name Genesis. I'm always looking for fun and unusual names for my characters(I LOVE to write).

Aaliyah was a very well-known R&B singer in the 90s. She was killed in a plane crash in 2001.

What's shocking? I thought it was going to be something like Lexus or Bentley. Brooklyn, Aliyah, etc. are not that odd. Brook Lynn was also a popular soap character I think.

uh....Genesis?

What I find more shocking are the old names coming back. Olivia, Sophia, Emma? Ugh. Grace. Victoria?? Are we in 1912 or 2012? Charlotte? Khloe with a K is kind of sad. The world is becoming rather illiterate but we seem to be naming our kids for the wrong century

lots of old English and old Jewish names are fashionable right now. I guess the parents feel more sophisticated. It allows them to be snobs when the other parents at the PTA meeting say they named their kid "Britney" or "Megan." Sophia sounds more sophisticated.

And yet, Lily as a name is centuries old, quite the irony huh?! Better yet, Lily is the short version of Olivia.

Lily was short for Lillian I think, Liv or Livy is short for Olivia but these days anyone can shorten their name to anything. My name is Lee, I get called Leela as I'm female my friends prefer it - so even short names get changed lol.
May 26, 2013

I love the name Lily...
Jun 14, 2014

These are BEAUTIFUL names. Khloe isn't even on the list. Stop criticizing parents.
Jun 14, 2014

What they name their kids is their right to choose and not your right to criticize.

The name 'Nevaeh' makes me laugh. It's like calling your baby 'egelloc', it's name won't help it get there.. ;)

And what's the opposite of Heaven? Ouch. There I can sympathize.

It's so silly how names in the US come and go like fashion. When I was a kid there were so many Michelles and Jennifers and now they don't even make the list at all. My sister has two girls. Abigail and Hayley (not Hailey.. maybe you could include that as an alt spelling?)... both unsurprisingly on this list. And a boy Jacob, which is I think the most trendy boys' name right now. People are such sheep...

yep, and Kelly, Melissa... I'd do better on one of these tests if it was using 1979 stats.

One of those is MY name! And I wasn't even born in the 1900s!

My kids are Elizabeth and Nathan. Unremarkable classics commonly spelled. But my husband wouldn't go for Chrysanthemum or Guildford.

I'm from the era of Vicky, Carol, and Debbie. You don't see those names anymore, either. Today they seem to prefer the longer versions, Victoria and Carolyn, and I suppose Deborah is completely off the charts. I have a friend whose granddaughters are named Melody and Symphony.

Avery and Riley are also girl's names? And Ava... what the heck should that be. And urgh... Savannah, Peyton and as said before Genesis and Serenity...

For all of the incredulous regarding this generation's names, I wonder what your names are or your daughters' names. I'm quite sure that previous generations said the same thing about them as you're saying now. Also, how childish and rude must you be to criticize someone's name?
May 20, 2013

Clearly you have daughters named Genesis and Serenity
May 20, 2013

It's not really the name but more that some parents seem to regard things like Genesis or Serenity as actual names, both of them give a connotation about a person, maybe also some prejudice. We're not in a fantasy universe where names acutally mean something and describe a character (as if you could know them before they're born).
May 20, 2013

What's in a name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Honestly, a name is whatever you want it to be. Genesis and Serenity sound like fine names to me. I was only chiding people for being unoriginal when they are usually trying to appear to be the opposite.
To yocoy: if I ever have a daughter I'd probably check what the popular names were the previous year and pick something not in the top 50. Whether it was a "real" (i.e. trendy and commonplace) name or something else.
May 26, 2014

Yeah. Too bad.

I don't understand why we're so judgmental when it comes to how others name their children. Just seems like an odd thing to have such a strong opinion about.

I feel sorry for anyone named Genesis... Serenity just barely, barely scrapes in as a possible, almost real name - but Genesis is just too far gone.
May 21, 2013
(59)
Genesis...no. Serenity...no. I'm with you except I don't think Serenity scrapes by at all. No bueno.

That was a huge fail for me. I got less than 10. I even typed Zena for Z.

What strange comments. What on earth makes any of these names any stranger than any other name that was popular at some point in history? I don't know any babies named Genesis myself, but I can't say that I feel any judgment or disdain toward someone who gives their child that or any other "unusual" name.
May 17, 2014

Well, for one thing, Serenity is a brand of, um...products for people who don't have good bladder control.
May 18, 2014

That's not the kids' fault! Actually, Serenity means 'peace'. So chill.

Why would anyone name their kid Genesis?

I don't have a problem with unusual names so much as ordinary names with unusual or alternate spellings. I really wish every name had just one universal spelling and that's it. Do you know how many times in my life I have been asked "Is that Eric with a 'c' or a 'k'?" I'm so sick of that. And it's only got to be worse for all the Gynnifers and Katelins of the world.

I agree. Tricking up a normal name by inventing a weird spelling just seems silly to me. There's a whiff of desperation to be "different" in it that's a bit pathetic.

Ironically, if there was an original spelling, then Eric might be considered the alternative. The name comes from the Norse, EirĂ­kr, and most Scandinavian countries still use the Erik spelling. A lot of the c/k differences come from different languages that use different letters for the same sound, just like they do for ph/f (e.g., Sophia/Sofia both legitimate). It all depends on where they name originated from. For example, Gaelic used a C for the sound, so the name Caitlin (which is Gaelic) technically should be spelled Caitlin. It would be nice if people stuck with the spelling where the name originated, but people want to be "creative", so you get the weird misspellings.

wow some of these names are crazy....

Aubrey is the weirdest to me. I've only heard it as a man's name, and from a few generations back as well. When did it become a girl's name?
May 26, 2014

Only Aubrey I know is Aubrey Plaza. She's a marginally famous actress/comedian. Cute.
May 27, 2014

Got five!

And for all the people complaining about these names-- At least they weren't named Lobelia(Sackville-Baggins)!
Jun 14, 2014

Ariana and arianna. Really?!

Taylor as a first name? You know sometime in the next few decades there are going to be a lot of girls named Taylor marrying a guy with the last name of Taylor. You're going to end up with a whole lot of Taylor Taylor's.
